Post op puree/soft food question



Recommended Posts

My plan states that in the puree and soft food phase I can have chicken, soft like the chicken in the can. Does that mean I have to puree the chicken or i can eat it as is?

soft food phase for sure.

I didn't eat chicken during the pureed phase. My guess is you'd have to puree it, but check with your clinic.

If you chew it really well you shouldn’t have to purée it. My nutritionist said chew until puréed (chew about 25 times) because no one wants to eat puréed meat 😂 Just make sure it’s moist and not dried out.

During the puree phase, I ate chicken by grinding it in the blender. I would grind up chicken curry and add some broth, or grind up Soup and add some chicken.

During the soft food stage, my doc suggested starting with chicken thighs. Even though they have more fat, they are softer and easier on your healing stomach.

Soft white fishes are also good. My doc said I could have them even during the puree stage.

Edit: Chew everything to applesauce consistency.

I would ask your program to make sure, but often some of the soft canned meats like tuna or chicken are acceptable to some. We didn't have a discrete puree phase (it was just lumped in together with all of the liquid to soft things and we could move between them as we could tolerate,) so I can't say for sure how your program wants to run things.

"Deviled chicken" is pretty soft and smooth. Look for it next to Deviled Ham in the grocery. images.jpeg.a9df36245e9b3ee85f14beecf2d80963.jpeg

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
